ABSTRACT :

Continuous electric power supply is indeed essential requirement for all type of consumer. Many activities like internet connection, communication network, class room and laboratory teaching, office routine etc get affected or come to stand still due to interruption of electric power in an education complex. This paper presents an alternative solution through solar photovoltaic based electric power source for an education complex situated in remote area. The University complex considered for study is situated in rural area of Kokan Maharastra in India facing acute power shortage especially in sunny days. However, University surrounding is bestowed with huge open space and shade free solar radiation suitable for solar power generation. Study conducted on average solar radiation revels that around 250-280 sunny days with average power of 1000Wperm2. Study includes total load calculation, segregation of load on priority basis, area available for placing solar panel, total solar radiation available on daily, monthly and yearly basis, designing of suitable model, designing of efficient storage system, cost analysis including life cycle cost, payback period.

Keywords: Electric Grid, Solar PV system, Average solar radiation, Life cycle cost, Payback period
